As part of the events taking place in Paris during ParisPhoto 2016, Filmessay has organized in collaboration with Paris College of Art a short session of E.V.A. – Experimental Video Architecture.
E.V.A. is a travelling format on experimental architecture videos, produced by Filmessay. It is now landing in Italy after the first edition in 2011 at the Museum of Contemporary Art of Vojvodina in Serbia, and the following one in 2013 in cooperation with Move Cine Arte Festival in São Paulo, Brazil. The third edition took place in Venice for the opening of the Biennale of Architecture in collaboration with Isolab.
The festival is meant to stimulate thoughts on the global process of urbanisation, housing possibilities, cities and their construction, the condition of man increasingly at the service of technology, the progressive fusion of reality and simulacrum. The screening programme offers a variety of visions and ideas that explore the definitions of architecture and raise potential questions on the perception of spaces.
Screening are hosted at Paris College of Art on November 8th, 2016 right before the opening of the exhibition 'Blurring the Lines curated by Steve Bisson and Francois Ronsiaux.
